Best for: Golf Fanatics
Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, Dominican Republic
Not only does this lush AAA Four Diamond resort boast three different golf courses designed by Pete Dye, but one of them, Teeth of the Dog, is regularly ranked best in the entire Caribbean. Dye and his wife Alice, a golf course designer, transformed a section of the coral coastline into this epic course, which first opened for play in 1971 and, after modern renovations, now stretches over 7,000 yards from tip to tip. Golf lovers can get around in complimentary golf carts and even book rooms with course views. And, when you’re off the green, there’s a stunning white–sand beach, activities like polo (both horse and water) and fishing, a full–service spa and 13 outdoor tennis courts.
Best for: Wellness Seekers
Haven Riviera Cancun, Mexico
For those seeking more than a Swedish massage, this property’s MySenses Spa packs a whole day’s worth of wellness activities, including a multistep water circuit with an herb–infused hammam, high–density steam room, cold mist shower and ice fountain (sort of like a big snow cone for body–cooling rubdowns). Special luxury suites await couples and bridal parties (this resort is adults–only), including one located outdoors off the private beach. For a treatment infused with local culture, there’s the Temazcal Experience, inspired by a traditional Mexican sweat lodge. This steam bath–focused ritual takes place in the Ceiba Garden and includes aromatherapy and music, all intended to purify body and mind.
